the president signed off on taking god and jerusalem out and now take a vote that looks elementary at best and now saying that the president wanted them to do the vote. it may have been a foregone conclusion. check out the teleprompter. >> steve: in the opinion of the chair two-thirds voted in the affirmative. was that cooked up on the fly we don't know. what is interesting we ran the clip dick durbin said those words don't matter. if they didn't really matter god and jerusalem, why did they have a floor vote that made the party look stupid. >> brian: did god belong in there and jerusalem capitol of israel? the fact is, the democratic party does not agree. their true colors showed and that should help the vores. >> gretchen: especially independents who are watching and may agree that god is part of the nation. >> steve: one other thing. the fact that the president of the united states should ask if they put jerusalem back in when his administration does not officially recognize jerusalem as the capitol. >> gretchen: remember when president obama said this? >> if you have a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> gretchen: the president spent two months and clarifying what he meant. obviously i regret for my syntax but not the point. everyone knows what i was saying, arizona scoring a big win. the state can enforce show me the parties part of law. the officers can check the immigration status. governor brewer disagree. >> it must be enforced fairly and affectively and without compromising civil rights or the constitution. >> opponents try to get the court to block it it is like out of the a movie. two robbers kidnapped a bank manager and strapped explosives to her body and ordered her to hand over the money. woman was kidnapped tuesday night and both men got away with the cash. queen latifah giving the national anthem a new take in the nfl kick off. some say she scored and others say not. ♪ and the rockets red glare. ♪ the bombs bursting in air. ♪ gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. >> gretchen: fans say the version is original but critics say she shouldn't have changed the song and said it was like off of a christmas album. >> brian: the cowboys went on to beat the giants. we'll see who got bigger ratings. hugs last night. how does bill clinton feel about president obama's overhauling and welfare reform . lany davis live next. >> steve: hundreds of people gathered to watch the demolition . but that demolition took an unexpected turn. hey, what is that?

july the white house agreed to loosen the requirements for the clinton welfare to work program. the republicans have made it a key issue. we have thereaction . they did change the signature issue. >> president clintonon is the augustor and negotiated it with the republicans. you have to trust his interpretation that it was not a violation of the work requirements. that was key to bill clinton and he wouldn't defend it if it was a violation . my question is politics, why do it now. he was giving states more flexilate and easy to distort. if i were barak obama, i would have waited. >> steve: here is your former boss william jefferson clinton defending president obama. >> the claim that president obama weakened welfare work requirements is not true. but they keep on running ads claiming it >> you know, he has a job to do and i think his job was to explain that the welfare regiulations with an increase of the work requirement to 20 percent if you get a waiver is complicated. i am not sure the americans understand it i would have said to president obama just don't mess with it the work requirement is important to bill clinton. >> steve: this is easy to understand. talk about the democratic platform committee taking god and jerusalem out of the platform. apparently the president had signed off on take out. >> this is easy to understand. there used to be a movie. dumb, dumber and dummest. the person responsible for that idea should have been up on the platform with water balloons thrown it >> had the democrats liked it it was a rare movement. >> as i have been to convention. they are not typical of the liberal democratic party. it shows how out of touch the platform and corey booker is a man of faith. i would have to ask him why he allowed it to happen. >> steve: here is a michigan delegate explaining why she thinks keeping jerusalem out of the platform is what president obama wants. >> the problem is, it contradicts with the administration position . the majority the delegates supported the previous language and instead through a three attempt vote. it failed twice and the third time it fail would but pushed through. >> brian: how much of the picture paint. >> this lady was the person to be throwing a water balloon at. >> was she ever elected to anything. we had jerusalem in the democratic party and suddenly she's telling us wrong in we don't take a position as a government but as a democratic party we have. her notion to take it out and make it a political issue is self inflicted injury. >> brian: you love this and you are in the bipartisan thing now. democrats and republicans agreed on this. >> it makes no sense. people like that representing a sliver of an opinion makes the democratic party look out of touch. >> steve: lanny

a priority. >> gretchen: this week transcanada resubmitted. the white house will not give permission until after the election. marti durbin joins me now and also the nefew of dick durbin. you are in a complicated situation. you would like to see the key stone pipe line go through and yet you are a democrat and people in your party specifically president obama stopped it >> the controversy around the issue is unfortunate. the project is strongly supported by both parties. we did a poll that showed 75 percent of the american voters support building the key stone pipe line and 64 percent are democrats. when you had last year at this time and strong support from a democratic governor and senator necessary montana and north dakota and building and construction trades, very strong supporter and this is guaranteed jobs for what is the best trained and safest and most protective work force in the world. >> gretchen: most americans are proponents of it. and your own uncle senator durbin voted against it and president obama doesn't want it, why? >> it is unfortunate to be caught up in the politics. this is it a project that will be approved and create jobs immediately and bring in long-term ecomic growth and this is not only bringing in oil from concanada but get the product to market. >> gretchen: why did your uncle dick durbin say he was not voting for it. >> i don't speak for senator durbin. the original came to the refine arey in illinois . again, the important thing here, you get such strong support on both sides of the aisle for moving it forward. our concern is that the president has wasted time it should have been apruched a year ago . and there are no more excuses. and the state department has done the reviews and it is all done. >> gretchen: many say it was about politics and i have to get this question in before you g. senator durbin was upset with our interviewer about god taken out of the democratic platform and said tawas not that big of a deal

michelle malkin is here with the results of a brand-new poll and it could spell trouble with a capital t with a guy who would like to one day be president. hour two for thursday commences immediately. >> gretchen: good morning, everyone. live from charlotte in what looks to be a beautiful day, even though the big speech for president obama was canceled tonight in the outdoor arena because of the threat of rain in the afternoon. we'll have to see how that plays out. they had make a decision, they did it. some people said maybe it was because they couldn't get enough people there. but whatever you believe, the speech will be indoors right over there tonight instead. >> brian: the chance of rain had to be brought up when they decided to do it outdoors and decided to take the risk. i feel sorry for all those people who descended on the city. it's thousands of people who have nowhere to go tonight. >> gretchen: a lot of people were going to be bussed in. maybe they're not going to be bussed in. >> steve: but then again, some republicans are suggesting, they didn't have enough people to fill up the stadium anyway, so it's better they're there. it's where 20,000 will be in attendance. the big speech last night was by bill clinton. and brian and i discovered we are staying at the same hotel as president of the united states. >> gretchen: odd beer with him or something? >> steve: no, no, no. he was about to company out when we were going out very early this morning. >> brian: we have an insider story that we claim as our exclusive story that we will share with you at the bottom of the hour. >> gretchen: really? i'm not at your hotel, so i'm not in on this. >> steve: it's good. and it has to do with bill clinton's speech last night. was it being edited right up to air time? we've got some skinny you're not going to hear any place else. >> brian: we saw it happen. >> gretchen: let me give you headlines. remember when president obama said this? >> if you got a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> gretchen: the president has spent close to two months defending that you didn't build it comment. but this morning he's clarifying what he meant. he told a local tv reporter, quote, obviously i have regrets for my syntax, but not fort.because everybody there watching knows exactly what i was saying. >>> big win in its fight against illegal immigration. federal judge ruling the state can now enforce the so-called show me your papers part of the law. it allows officers to check the immigration status of people they believe are here illegally. critics claim it amounts to racial profiling, but republican governor john brewer disagrees. >> i've said senate bill 1070 must be enforced fairly, effectively and without compromising civil rights or the constitution. >> gretchen: the supreme court upheld the provision in june, but opponents tried to get a judge to block it. >>> let's tell you about this bizarre story. something out of a hollywood thriller. two robbers kidnapped a bank manager, they strapped what they claimed were explosives to her body and/ored her to hand over the money. at a bank of america in los angeles. bomb squad was called in to remove the device. police say she was kidnapped tuesday night, then taken to the bank next morning. both men got away with the cash. >>> first lady michelle obama revealing the top ten reasons people should watch the democratic national convention. >> number 6. >> as healthy alternative, we're using low fat confetti. >> yeah. and number 4. >> there will be no kiss cam. >> oh, come on. why not? number 2. >> joe biden says it will be a big you know what deal. >> gretchen: the first lady no strange tort david letterman show. that was her second appearance in just the last week. wow. those are your headlines. >> brian: to my immediate left is someone on the set, welcome back michelle malkin. >> thank you, and no kiss cam here. >> brian: i want to get your impression of bill clinton's 48 minute speech last night. any surprises? do you think it was effective in endorsing president obama? >> who is surprised? after years and years of covering him when he wasn't in the white house, is it any surprise that's undisciplined, self someonent? these are the adjectives that came out of the headlines there. and you wonder what does this serve other than bill clinton's ego? >> gretchen: i think does wonders for president obama. if you believe the stories that they don't love each other that much, for president obama to ask bill clinton to have this kind of huge role at the convention, i think he needs him. >> what did he need? reinforcing of the rank and file of the democratic file? he's got plenty of that. and i wonder what independent, what conservative democrat out there, the constituencies that bill clinton prided himself on solidifying when he was in administration, did that work? i don't think bolstered anything at all? >> steve: bill clinton also reminded the crowd that during the clinton days, the economy was roaring. he didn't mention, however, toward the end of his administration, the tech bubble burst and the nasdaq went down like 46% there in the last year. none the less, the former president said that the current president had it much worse than he did. watch this. >> president obama started with a much weaker economy than i did. listen to me now. no president, no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years. >> brian: the question is, did he do everything he could to fix it? >> in response to that particular sound bite, of course, you don't measure yourself, if you're obama, by clinton standards. we should measure him by obama's own standards. and obama said he should be out of there in four years at the didn't do the job. clinton last night used the term alternativeniverse and i really felt like i was in one. >> gretchen: let's talk about the other chaos unfolding before the big night. it had to do with the democratic platform. amazingly to many people, the day before they took out the one reference to god left in the platform and they also said that jerusalem basically was not the capitol city of israel anymore. then there was another vote. what did you make of all that? >> then he has his sherpa handler whispering in his ear because he didn't know what to do. >> steve: it's bit of a train wreck. here is the l.a. mayor with a vote that didn't go right. >> all those delegates in favor, say i. >> i. >> all those delegates opposed, say no. >> no! >> in the opinion -- let me do that again. all of those delegates in favor say i. >> i. >> all those delegates opposed say no. >> no. >> i guess i'll do that one more time. all those delegates in favor, say i. >> i. >> all those delegates opposed, say no. >> no. >> in the opinion of the chair, two-thirds have voted in the affirmative, the motion is adopted and the platform has been amended as shown on the screen. >> brian: they steam rolled right through. that is an embarrassment. >> they should have had an objective applause meter. >> steve: it sounded like the no's had it. >> brian: if they're trying to main stream itself, this is not a good way to do it. look at the platform and the wording of the controversial use of god, what they had said was, the quote was something like government serves to enhance the, quote, god given potential of every person. and this causes this ruckus to say god given potential. >> brian: you think the bigger picture is you saw how they feel? >> yeah. >> brian: so they're not denying it was a mistake. it was not a mistake! >> that's right. this naked reveal is very, very -- >> gretchen: how does the president factor in to that because apparently the report something he approved the platform to take those two words out and he was the one who demanded that they get put back in. could it be a political situation going on here? do you really believe both of those stories? >> well, i'll tell you this much, i think that for the last four years, this president has been dick indicated not by a clintonesque moderation in the white house. you look at the strategist, the people whispering in his ear. it's radical extremists like valerie jarrett. and finally, after four years, it's dawning on people that it's not merely a merit of pragmatic politic, but listening to and indulging and pandering to the kind of people who boo when you say god! >> brian: one person going to speak tonight, usually the vice president speaks last night. now they'll speak tonight. joe biden factor. they're trying it bolster him all week long. >> steve: they're so excited! >> brian: what's going to happen? >> the comedy goal is glistening. this is a man for four years committed gaffe after gaffe after gaffe after gaffe. and who more recently has indulged in something that is not playing well with the american electorate. i think it's that kind of race clownery, the chains remark, trying to rile up the left fellow-of the base. we'll have to see what he'll be up to. who knows? you talk about rewrites at the last minute with clinton, this is a nail biter. >> steve: here is bad news for the vice president and the white house as well. there is a new poll out that when you were asked, which word would you use to describe joe biden, 38% said negative. only 23% said positive. and about 40% said neutral. then you look at the words to describe paul ryan. 35% negative. 37 positive. that's good for him. and only 28% neutral. it looks like in the battle of the beef, brian wins. >> brian: unserious is another word i'd use. >> pandering. and i think the ways in which this man has tried to ridiculously cast himself as identifying with the middle class, when he is one of the worst beltway barncals in that swamp and benefited mightily from it. the whole idea of middle class joe -- >> gretchen: just the other day he said he didn't want to get into details because of it too hot. [ laughter ] >> oh, yeah. >> steve: check out her social media web site, twitchy.com. you can also go to michellemalkin.com. >> great to see you guys. >> gretchen: we'll talk to you next week. coming up, dnc boss deb key warsman schultz denies ever saying republicans were dangerous for israel. then what would explain this? >> we know and i heard ambassador orrin say this, the republicans are doing it dangerously for israel. >> gretchen: you won't believe how she's reacting. >> brian: the president has a decision to make. who should he target tonight? juan williams here live to talk about the big deal tonight. the final speech and then we pack up and go home. >> steve: they're walking against the light. >> brian: right ♪ [ acoustic guitar: slow ] [ barks ] ♪ [ upbeat ] [ barks ] beneful playful life is made with energy-packed wholesome grains... and real beef and egg. to help you put more play in your day. for a golf getaway. double miles you can actually use... but mr. single miles can't join his friends because he's getting hit with blackouts. shame on you. now he's stuck in a miniature nightmare. oh, thank you. but, with e capital one venture card... you can fly any airline, any flight, any time. double miles you can actually use. what's in your wallet?

ask your doctor. we already asked 3,000. >> gretchen: the president's acceptance speech has many wondering what exactly will he say? will he respond to mitt romney's attacks from the rnc last week? joining me now, co-host of the fife, juan williams, and author of fast and furious, katy. good to see both of you. juan, does he appeal to the independents or the base? >> i think you've got to do both, but he's got it do it by building on what president clinton did so well last night, which is he's got to move the conversation forward. clinton really, i think, spoke to a lot of what happened in tampa and he spoke to a lot of the arguments against president obama's reelection, especially the idea that somehow he inherited a mess that didn't clean it up quickly enough. so tonight i think president obama now is free to talk about looking forward. what does he have in mind for the american people for the next four years? >> steve: katie, does he respond to mitt romney directly from the rnc last week? >> i have no doubt he'll be responding to mitt romney directly considering the tone the convention has taken so far. in terms of what president obama needs to bring up tonight that's new, he has to find something to run on. he's been running on bill clinton's record as we saw last night. they're bringing out bill clinton to tout his record back in the '90s. he's been trying to run on the record of george w. bush for four years. it's time for president obama to present a plan moving forward rather than staying stuck in the past. >> gretchen: will the president tonight, juan, capitalize on the headline of what bill clinton said yesterday, that no president, even bill clinton himself, would not have been able to take the country out of the mire, using their words, of where barak obama found this country when he came into office? will he dare go there because there is an interview on tape because he said if he didn't fix it in four years, he should be out. >> what he said was the unemployment rate hadn't been below 8%. >> gretchen: it's not. >> clearly this situation was far worse than what anyone understood at the time. everybody says that. that's why you had bipartisan agreement in terms of the need for the wall street bailout. in terms of the need for stimulus spending. so the question here is to just try to refocus the american people and not let them buy into one side's bitter rhetoric or the idea that we're going to do anything we can to prevent this guy's reelection. i think he's got not only speak to that idea. again, i think president clinton did a masterful job of offer ago substantive job of offering what president obama can do, but move forward. he's not running on anybody else's argument. he's saying, i have a job plan. i know how to get this economy going. >> gretchen: that will be interesting to see if he talks specifically about his own details. katy, i want to you look at this graphic because when thank is what the american people are living every day. unemployment up to 8.3% from 7.8 when obama took office. median income down. gas prices more than doubled. national debt from $10.6 trillion to $16 trillion. katie, it seems that the talking points about are you better off now than you were four years ago transform dramatically from the first day when some democrats said no, we're not. or they couldn't answer the question, to what juan just said, which is, we were actually dealt an even worse hand than we thought. >> when you look at those striking numbers, things are better off than they were when president obama took office. the fact is that people are living this every day. this isn't about bitter rhetoric. it's about hard numbers. if you look at what bill clinton said last night, any president couldn't turn this situation around, well, you go to the states you and look at new jersey governor chris christie in new jersey who had a huge deficit, i believe it was $4 billion in that state. turned it around. scott walker in wisconsin, all the republican governors who were elected in 2010 have decreased their unemployment rates. it's possible if you do it the right way. time for president obama to move forward with a plan and change things around. >> they've all done it under president obama and those numbers are pretty selective. if you look at gdp, it's better. look at wall street, nasdaq, anybody has investments will tell you we're better off today. >> gretchen: i got to go. you continue the conversation. but i got to go. here is what's coming up i that. it's one of the largest food brands in the world and they're head quartered in charlotte. what does the outgoing ceo at chiquita want from the next president? he'll join us live next. with all the opinions about stocks out there, how do you know which ones to follow? the equity summary score consolidates the ratings of up to 10 independent research providers into a single score that's weighted based on how accurate they've been in the past. i'm howard spielberg of fidelity investments. the equity summary score is one more innovative reason o ing what soup can do. >> gretchen: time for news bit numbers. 7th place, that's where the u.s. slips to in ranking of global competitiveness. our country dropped two spots. next, $30 million, that's how much the nfl donated to studying brain injuries in athletes. this comes as a new study finds they're more likely to die from alzheimer's and als. finally, $4,000. that's reportedly how much honey, boo boo and family made per episode for their hit show, $40,000 for the entire season. all right. let's go back up to steve. >> steve: thank you very much. it is one of the largest food brands in the world and they're headquartered right here, we're sitting in their block. there is their office tower right there. chiquita brands international moved to charlotte after getting $22 million in government incentives to bring more jobs to the area. but it hasn't been all smooth sailing. our next guest is taking responsibility trying to change that before he steps down. we're joined by chiquita banana brands ceo, fernando, good morning. >> good morning. >> steve: you are great neighbors. why did you move to charlotte? >> we moved for several reasons. number one, we were look for an area that was very pro-business and this is very much a location that is very good for business. we were looking for an area that had diversity, growing, and this is also an area that has a lot of hispanic population, which is very important for our business. >> steve: and so obviously the president, their policies on immigration impact your business significantly. >> very important. immigration is very important for us. we believe that having some sort of guest worker program is an important thing. for the produce industry, and i might add that also for the service industry, hotels, restaurants, everyone -- we simply don't have enough people to have all those jobs. >> steve: it sounds like you liked what george w. bush proposed a couple years ago with the guessworker program. >> i am not very political. >> steve: i understand that. but you liked the idea. >> we do like the idea. we have to have those workers in our facilities, there is no question in my mind and the produce industry is dependent on them. >> steve: you said it's very challenging right now. we've got a poll that shows the number of people who are satisfied with the economy right now. very satisfied, only a quarter of americans say they are. somewhat satisfied, 17%. not very satisfied, 8%. not satisfied at all, 50%. that's gigantic. >> it is. unfortunately, i think the economic environment has not been very favorable in the last four years. i think we're looking for a lot of help from the business community. we need to create jobs. there is no question. >> steve: of course, the next president of the united states, whether it be mitt romney or barak obama, their vision is what you depend on. i think we've got a sound bite of both visions. we're going to play them a little later on. america is going to dom a fork in the road coming up in november. i know you will be voting for the very first time as an american citizen. there is a lot to consider. >> that's right. i became a u.s. citizen in 2009. so this is my first presidential election. i have not decided yet who i'm going to vote for. i'm still listening to issues. immigration is important, economy is important. certainly a lot of other things that are important to me. diabetes being one of them. curing diabetes is important to me. >> steve: it's great to be in your neighborhood. we thank you very much for joining us. >> welcome it charlotte. >> steve: and they also have the chiquita banana girl floating around handing out bananas. it's great. straight ahead, when the president wasn't looking, i moved in. coming up, i will show what you it's like on air force one. and debbie wasserman schultz claims she never said the republican party was dangerous to israel. now there is an audio tape. oh,o h. this soup. 4g lte has the fastest speeds. so let's talk about coverage. based on this chart, who would you choose ? wow. you guys take a minute. verizon, hands down. i'm going to show you guys another chart. pretty obvious. i don't think color matters. pretty obvious. what's pretty obvious about it ? that verizon has the coverage. verizon. verizon. we're going to go to another chart. it doesn't really matter how you present it. it doesn't matter how you present it. verizon. more 4g lte coverage thaall other networks combined. exclusive to the military, and commitment is not limited to one's military oath. the same set of values that drive our nation's military are the ones we used to build usaa bank. with our award winning apps that allow you to transfer funds, pay bills or manage your finances anywhere, anytime. so that wherever your duty takes you, usaa bank goes with you. visit us online to learn what makes our bank so different. >> brian: look at this simulator, going around the track, switching gears. you can't teach this. switching gears again. look up top. all right. this is a simulator. i'm trying to straighten out my drive. i think i'm going the wrong way now. there we go. now watch this. >> steve: hey! he's doing doughnuts! you're going the wrong direction, brian! look out. >> brian: here we go. third gear, fourth gear. i'm off the grass. i'm going to go high on the green line. here we go on the green line. when the red comes up, that's means i should brake. i don't think i will, though. i'll go around the curve. i really feel like i'm driving. i have the wind in my face. i'm eating some dust. i forgot to brake there. going around the curve. i should gun it. >> steve: a skid! backward! up against the wall! >> gretchen: you saved it. >> brian: i'm going to third gear, i'll go down. >> gretchen: in case people are just waking up, niece a -- he's in a nascar hall of fame simulator. he's not driving on a track. but if he were, it would be a rough ride. >> brian: they told me i was driving. so please don't ruin this for me. >> gretchen: okay. >> steve: then close your door. you got the door open. >> brian: here is my gears. that's true. i cannot save myself once i start skidding. >> gretchen: oh! >> brian: people are throwing up their pop tarts right now all across this country. >> steve: you're going the wrong way again. >> brian: here we go. just give me one more chance. >> steve: you just hit the wall. >> brian: i should stop reading and play more visual games. >> gretchen: could you switch with chris chulo, maybe he could drive better. >> brian: go ahead. >> gretchen: are you going to operate camera? >> brian: yeah. i'm going to operate the camera. >> gretchen: let's see how this works. >> gretchen: chris, show him up. >> steve: chris is hooked up to something. this is working out well. we go from brian driving nascar to brian driving a high def camera. >> gretchen: let's see which one he's better at. >> steve: zoom out a little. >> gretchen: great job! >> brian: hit the brake. now in second gear. >> steve: this is very realistic because people just off the street, like chris, like brian, get to hop into the simulator and see what it's like to be going around a nascar track over 100 miles an hour. >> brian: to those at home, it looks like he's not doing anything. >> steve: get your foot off the brake. >> gretchen: we're going to see how they end up doing. we'll check back in with them in just a minute as he's getting coached by somebody who probably knows better. >> steve: very good. so that's what it's like to drive a nascar, car. coming up in a few minute, you'll find out what it's like to be president of the united states where you can -- it sure looks like you're at the white house, you're on air force one, all that stuff live here in the great city of charlotte. >> gretchen: all right. let's do some headlines because it's a losing bet for president obama and the dnc. they'll both lose money on rental and security fees from moving the president's speech to the time warner cable arena. the president says the move was based on weather concerns. but others say democrats were worried they couldn't fill up the arena. the exact dollar won't be calculated for weeks. but to give you an idea, the host committee in denver paid $2.8 million for rental fees. this speech that you're seeing here on video. >> steve: plus the security deposits. it's a miracle they survived. a pilot and his passenger are somehow alive after their plane went down and burst into flames. look at that mess. people lived. >> steve: apparently it crashed into a field in texas, exploding into a fire ball. both guys escaped. both, however, are listed in serious condition. >> gretchen: nasa astronauts pulling off a move just like mcgycer. >> now what? >> gretchen: they use a toothbrush to attach two metal poles to pick the $100 million space station. the toothbrush allowed them o clean out a malfunctioning electrical bolt. >> steve: they didn't have duct tape? meanwhile, high school football team is on a 31-game losing streak and now we have a pretty good idea why. the quarterback in pennsylvania going way off target, and nail add referee. however, the ref got right back up and walked it off. somehow the team's coach is confident that the looing woes are almost over. boom! down goes the ref. how unfortunate. >> gretchen: let's talk about this for a minute. you know that the spokesperson for the democratic party is debbie wasserman schultz and she said she had never said something that she actually did say when it came to the topic of republicans and how israelis feel about them. now, listen to this tape because then it was exposed that this actually had been on tape after she went on several broadcasts and said that she had never said it. >> steve: shear what -- >> brian: she blamed the croppist. >> steve: here is what the croppist wrote. debbies wasserman schultz claimed the ambassador accused republicans of being dangerous to israel by criticizing president obama's record. okay. then here is the quotation from debbie wasserman schultz. that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. it's not surprising they would deliberately misquote me. >> brian: that's where the plot thickens because they are not misquoting at all. >> steve: philip klein produced the audio tape. here she is caught in the action of telling a fib. >> we go and i've heard michael orrin say this that the republicans are doing is dangerous to israel. they're undermining israel's security. >> brian: you can't misquote an ambassador who is furious and said, i never said anything like that, we're not trying to get involved in the political process. she was caught blaming a conservative columnist. she didn't know there was a tip. >> gretchen: that's been exposed. i found it very interesting that the whole idea of taking god and jerusalem out of the democratic platform and now it's been reinstated. that wasserman schultz called that a technical problem, that it was just a technical problem that it originally wasn't there and now that it's back in. >> steve: yep. >> brian: did you watch fox news sunday? david axelrod said there is up with thing about our party, there won't be any dramatics or side shows like with the rnc. i'm seeing a lot of that at the dnc. >> steve: something else you can see right here is something called the presidential experience. it's nonpartisan tribute to white house history. about five blocks from where we're sitting right now. you can find out exactly what it's like to be the president. kind of. let's go. ♪ . >> hello, welcome to the white house. >> steve: so with the presidential experience here, you get to be the president without actually getting elected. getting elected these days cost about a billion dollars. how much does it cost to come through here? >> 14.95. >> steve: back before midnight we'll throw in an eisenhower shoe. this is cool. johnson and murphy has been making shoes for the president since 1850. those are abe lincoln's shoes. he had the biggest feet, according to the shoe company. here is ronald reagan's shoes. they made them for ronnie and gerald ford. you got richard nixon shoes and harry s. truman, the buck skin stops here. that shoe belongs to woodrow wilson. >> more than a vehicle, this jumbo jet is the president's airborne global command center. >> steve: you're the only guy i know who owns his own air force one. way to go. >> any mother says you own an airplane and it doesn't have any wings in how smart is that? that's an exact replica of air force one. it's got the top secret documents, i'm talking on the orange phone. the only thing i haven't found and brian wanted me to look around for, was that escape pod, you know the one i'm talking about?

[ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serus allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. it helps to have people around you... they say, you're much bigger than this. and you are. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. >> gretchen: couple headlines if you're just joining us. republican vice presidential nominee paul ryan says he supports prayer in public schools if approved by the state. he adds it's a moral responsibility to say the pledge of allegiance as parents. you're not going to believe what's in the middle of the living room inside of this house. take a look. yep. a swimming pool. the mansion in new jersey on the market right now for only $19 million. steve? >> steve: very nice. >> thursday night i will offer what i believe is a better path forward, a path that will create good jobs and strengthen our middle class and grow our economy, and the good news is, virginia that, in just two months, you get to choose which path we take. >> steve: there is president obama rallying voters in virginia on tuesday, a state that will be crucial in the election. obama being the first democrat to win the state since 1964 with more than half of the votes. what had ryan and romney have to do to win the state? joining us is the governor of the commonwealth of virginia, bob mcdonnel. right now in your state, it's dead heat between romney and obama. what's your side have to do to win? >> they've already done a lot. five months ago, romney was down eight. now it's a dead heat. i think the momentum is on the side -- i've never seen a grassroots organization like this, with the number of phone calls and door knocks and offices that have been opened. i think the reason for that is despite all these great speeches you're going to hear probably tonight, 'cause the president will deliver a good one, bill clinton did a fine job, although he really stretched it on eny and other things, the debt, just not believable. but here is the bottom line, steve, speeches only get so you far. they don't create jobs. virginiaians are practical. monday they woke up with the highest gas prices in history. and the highest debt. friday morning, tomorrow, after the speech tonight they'll wake up and have 43 months in a row with 8% unemployment. virginia voters look at that and say, i think we can do better if we trusted him, it didn't work. it's time for a change. >> steve: what about the virginia voters, governor, who, to use the president's own words where he was talking about people in pennsylvania, they cling to their guns and god. when they see the democrats' platform committee took god and jerusalem out of their platform and eventually put it back in by an embarrassing vote, does that impact the voters there in virginia? >> i think it impacts voters all over the country. you don't make that kind of mistake by accident. to have essentially what sounded like a tie voice vote on whether we believe your talents come from god, that that's debatable in a democratic committee shows how left they've gone. this is not bill clinton's party. i think the average middle class voter is faithful and i
